Tyler: Hi, I eat my meals exclusively off of dead dickless men.
Greg: they'll keep PB and J sandwiches. Cool. For at least six months. Forgot one. Didn't realize until I was buried, I was like, Oh yeah, sandwich.
Tyler: It was my first meal out, a lot of digging, but boy, was that not worth it?
Greg: It's totally a contraband. The chest cavity is actually very large when it's empty. Did you know that you can fit 48 packages of ramen in a man's chest.
Tyler: 48 packages of ramen and turns out plus one PB and J, who knew?
Hey, everybody, we're back for another episode of naner news. Tyler brought his arm
Tyler: Oh, I just, I can't get,
Ryan: Yeah, it's not going to work
Tyler: yeah, I can't get a good angle on my, my arm penises. Yeah, I'll
Greg: If I hold it like this, just like they're pitching my meatballs.
Ryan: Uh huh.
Greg: I'm going in tomorrow. So apparently the piece that was becoming a, a band around my arm has turned into a piece that starts here and curves up here.
Ryan: For the same price?
Ryan: I was going to say that's a great deal
Tyler: Much cheaper
Greg: I can't pay rent for the next few months, but it's
Tyler: fine, but you can eat your meatballs.
Greg: You know, we're here to do, we're here to talk about.
Ryan: I don't,
Greg: News today. We're going to go over, uh, things like China, Intel, Virgin airlines, and more.
Tyler: Wow. I can't wait. Cannot wait.
Greg: All right. So the we're going to jump right into it because it's a beautiful day outside today. It's 70 degrees and sunny and it is time for the alright. Today's headlines are brought to you by. Oh, we don't have a sponsor?
Ryan: We don't have sponsor
Tyler: I wait. I mean, Hey, anyone listening? It could, could be you.
Ryan: You could be right there.
bar is shockingly low.
Greg: this week's episode is brought to you by John Lowell who lives on Manchester street in Manchester.
He paid us $5 to stop recording. Well, jokes on you. So China has sent the world's first six G test satellite into orbit, meaning six G meaning guys, they just strapped six guys to a rocket
Ryan: sent them right up.
Greg: boom, go. Yep. Um, so it went into space
Ryan: It sure did.
Greg: and it went into orbit along with 12 other satellites. And so it's not so.
We're still a few years away from six G. So I'm, I'm, I'm not wondering why they're doing it, but.
Ryan: it is weird because we are, we're not even really in the 5g world quite yet. I mean, they're the first ones to do it. This is what they're claiming is they've launched the world's first six G satellite. So it has the ability to do six G.
We don't even have 5g everywhere. Like there's like 10 cities.
Greg: keep in mind that it also carries technology that will be used for crop disaster monitoring and forest fire prevention.
Ryan: This is true,
Greg: About a year too late for Australia.
Ryan: Well, nobody's perfect.
Tyler: wait, you're telling me this missile is not only going to send dope internet, but it'll also make gender reveal party safe.
Ryan: It sounds like a win-win.
Greg: Well, I think what China's GU is trying to do is that it's trying to take a leap ahead in mobile technology,
Ryan: I mean, this would be the way to do it,
Greg: yeah. And you're talking about a lot of people that it needs to service, um, and they might as well work with a company cause Weiwei has got nothing to do, so they might as well, you know, partner with them.
But, um, Yeah, it's interesting too. It'll we'll I guess we'll see if it, uh,
Ryan: If anything actually happens, maybe it was maybe, maybe that'll light the fire under people that can get the 5g going places because that's nowhere.
Tyler: My favorite part of this article is the telecoms industry is still several years away from agreeing on six G specifications. So in a couple of years, this might not be a 60 satellite anymore. You
Ryan: have been a huge
Greg: like, Oh yeah, that rocket is just powered by pure plutonium. We have no regulations for it. So it gives us a
Ryan: Nobody told us we couldn't.
Greg: Yeah. It's a great conductor.
Ryan: it does exactly what we want it to. And then some,
Tyler: 60 satellites, 5g. Hamsters dead lost. They've lost the G
Greg: Speaking of things that are dead, uh, Intel. Yeah. Um, after a month talking about how AMD just totally, you know,
Ryan: was just destroying
Greg: celled, Intel, Intel, Z graphics is coming
Ryan: Well, you sure are. So yeah,
Greg: going to, it is a dedicated graphics card.
Ryan: It is. Yep.
Greg: Now the question is, I mean, it looks cool.
Ryan: It does look cool, but I believe this series of graphics cards, and I'm going to have to reread a little bit here on the article, but I believe this was supposed to be for the, the laptop market, super wrong about that because that's where Intel has been making a GPS for a while.
But pretty much only in laptops, they haven't really done what Nvidia is doing and what Raytheon is doing as well. So. If I'm wrong and this is actually supposed to be for a desktop model, then this, I believe this is their first GPU they've ever launched for a desktop model.
Greg: Yeah. I mean, they are, they are the Kings of integrated laptop graphics. I mean, that's, that's them. Um, and the, so I think, again, this is another example of them doing anything that they can to keep up with AMD and others. Just anything like this is just, let's throw more shit against a wall and see what sticks.
Ryan: Yeah, they're very quickly, uh, being undermined in all areas.
Greg: Walway joined the GPU market as well. They're going to be producing one.
Tyler: data in data centers
Ryan: I did not know
Greg: Oh, is adjusting data centers.
Greg: But still that's another place that Intel cannot reach out and be like, Hey, you want our stuff? They're like, now we gotta walk away. Go back. Didn't they go back to Amazon. They're like, do you want our graphics card?
And Jeff Bezos is like, yes. And you will give it to me for free. Here is here's a Luna. And they're like, okay,
Tyler: They just bust in Jeff Bezos is in bed with dr. Lisa Walker. Want allowance? What do you want? What do you want in town? I got,
Greg: Using the graphics card is a pillow.
Tyler: brought you a new GPU. How GPU?
Greg: I brought you a GPU. Is it AMD? No, get out. So yeah,
Ryan: who looks you back inside?
Tyler: you go hang out with stadia.
Greg: So all we can say is from the bottom of our heart Intel. Good luck.
Ryan: Thanks for trying.
Tyler: There, there was an attempt
Greg: Yeah. Speaking of attempts, uh, VR, Verizon attempted to make a smartwatch for kids.
Ryan: That seems like a
Tyler: that's not
Greg: Um, well, it has been out it's it's the, um, the gizmo watch.
Um, and they've, they've had a gizmo line of kids, tech products. Uh, the gizmo watch has been out since 2018, but the whole gizmo line is they have a tablet. Um, they have a variety of watches and that
Ryan: Oh, that's great for kids though, because what else do they fricking need?
Greg: Yeah. I mean, it's, you can get, you can get one that has a donut on it and you can get one that has Mickey mouse.
Ryan: What about a baby Yoda? Yoda?
Greg: Oh, you can now,
Ryan: I'm good. I'm fricking want
Greg: so the gizmo watch is now going to have a Disney edition so they can have baby Yoda on it. They can have Elsa from frozen. They can have, there are Pixar, Marvel and star Wars characters that, uh, they can have. Uh, and these characters are animated on the watch face. Um, and it has activity features to keep kids moving and subsequent rewards.
And I'm just curious as to what those motivations and rewards could be. Cause ours, you know, we're motivated like wanting to, but it's just like, it's like, beep beep beep run towards the road as fast as you can. And the kids like, okay.
Ryan: Go do laps around your house until your mom is
Greg: and if he gets back to the house without the GPS being destroyed in the watch, the phone, the watch knows he's alive and it's like, hurray, you've got one cake point.
Ryan: that's a good point though. The incentive be, I mean, really, depending on the age of the kid, like some flashing colors is really all you need and like a happy, upbeat sound and they are just ready to fucking go. Right. But. I mean, I don't know. I it's definitely not marketed towards, like, I would say even kids that are in like fourth or fifth grade, I don't think it's really marketed towards them.
It's like really young kids.
Greg: Yeah. I mean, it depends on what else, what else I can do? I mean, it does have things like the medical ID stuff. It has the built in GPS, um, SOS button for kids to press, which great. How many times are you gonna press that one?
Ryan: all too many times. Yep.
Greg: Um, and then, uh, it also has a front facing camera, so kids can have 10 trusted contacts to set up and I would buy ones for kids just to screw with my friends and just make them the trusted context.
So they just, every fucking minute, they're just like, God damn it. Sorry. It's my son.
Ryan: does he need, you know, he just fricking pushes the button all the time.
Tyler: Sorry, it's a kid. Like it's like just
Ryan: just a kid, just another one of those kids.
Tyler: I mean, if you really need to keep, like, I don't, yeah. I don't know who this is for. Like, keep an eye out of your kid when they're out, like gone. Like, but I don't know. Aren't they old enough and big enough to tell ya.
Ryan: I know,
Greg: and at least do something that's gonna develop like their maturity, like at least come with like LinkedIn preloaded or something like that.
Ryan: Or like, I don't know, a stock trader or something really get them finances in early
Greg: mouse, adventure. And then it's just like, you know, the YouTube kids channel the Netflix channel and then just like grinder might as well start now.
Tyler: LinkedIn Jordan. He's a, he's the CEO of recess and, uh, runs for 10 minutes a day.
Greg: I know playground hierarchy just changed for the worst.
Ryan: Seriously, if you
Greg: there's like the kid on top, the kid on top of the dome is now on his watch being like summoning his minions to beat up the weak
Ryan: all of you. Come here now
Tyler: He's he just slaps watches on other people and tracks them on his
Greg: Yeah. And then he gets smart and like takes the nerd and just like prize out the SOS button. So as he's beating the shit out of him, he can't press for help.
Tyler: beats him with his own watch.
Greg: so glad I'm not getting bullied nowadays.
Ryan: God, you'd be great at it
Tyler: The beating would tweet about it every time it gets here.
Ryan: Every time he hits it. Ha you got hit again.
Tyler: No just
Ryan: It would just be like, man, you're doing great. Cause it thinks he's running so
Tyler: they would treat it as like exercise. Just fuck. Good job. Great. Keep it up.
Greg: It's like, it's like if the Bobbitt were just like a beating stick,
Tyler: weight. Yeah.
Greg: hit him. Niamh ankle. I'm cool. Spin it.
Tyler: New record
Greg: Speaking of new records, we're going to talk about the Virgin Hyperloop.
Yep. The Virgin Hyperloop is a huge, it works is a, is a human caring thing.
Ryan: like a train,
Greg: is a train. It's a high, it's a high speed train.
Tyler: what I know, you know, those things at the bank, the cartridges just go foom.
Ryan: Oh, nevermind.
Tyler: Where it's just kind of shoots through it.
Ryan: The vacuum tube.
Tyler: Where you put your spaghetti. Uh, it's
Ryan: marinara sauce.
Tyler: it's, it's basically that.
Greg: Yeah. It's based off of Elon Musk, that open source when they saw that open source ideas for stuff it's based on one of those. And, um, it, it was the first human passengers on this Hyperloop,
Ryan: The CEO of the company was, was on there. I don't know if he was the first, but he did
Greg: put the most high risk people possible in this while they did run hundreds of unmanned tests beforehand, but still. What like the guy, like that's like the low level accountant clerk.
Ryan: but the guy who built it. So that way, you know, it's like, by the way, if you mess this up, you're the first one in it.
So make sure you get it right.
Greg: The goal is, is to get to a speed of 500 miles per hour. So you could get to like LA to San Francisco in 45 minutes as opposed to 90 minutes by plane. Yes. However, uh, that during that test, it was only 240 miles now only 240
Greg: Which means that you could get to Los Angeles to San Francisco in 90 minutes versus 90 minutes by plane.
Tyler: Particular test only went like 107, just because, so the thing can get up to 40, but on 500 feet of track,
Ryan: which is all that they had.
Tyler: It's just not enough space to bring it up to speed and then slow it down with human beings on. So I think the pod in this task only went about 107 because people just to show that it did in fact work, you could get in it, you could comfortably write it and do all that.
Um, I think that'd be awesome if that works.
Greg: They want it fully functional within the next eight
Ryan: Well, and that's the thing. If you have a long enough track, right? I mean, think back to the railroads that used to the Intercontinental railroads, it's the same idea. But with this it's, it's ramped up to a hundred thousand because you're able to go stupid fast way fast.
Greg: Branson is a bad-ass.
Ryan: Yeah. He's all right. Yep.
Tyler: Have you seen the picture? Was it him? Uh, just water skiing, nude with a model?
Greg: Yeah. No, but I really want,
Tyler: Yeah. Well, I mean, I can't, I'm not about to throw it up on the, the video here.
Ryan: don't, I mean, you don't have to look it up at all. I can look it up
Tyler: Yeah, it's the whole video and I'm just a picture, a whole video. Uh, it's hilarious. I mean,
Ryan: awkwardly cringy?
Tyler: no, I mean he know he's like, Oh, he's, he's kite surfing my bed. He's kite
Greg: I really wanted the Hyperloop to be like, and here's our first test and it just zooms 240 miles an hour backwards and just goes poof. And just
Ryan: Like, Oh, no,
Greg: with the remotes, like, um,
Ryan: he looks at it and goes, Oh, and he flips it upside down.
Tyler: R is for ready. Right?
Ryan: Not reverse.
Tyler: All right. Yeah. Yeah, no, no, no. D is for don't.
Greg: G is for go backwards.
Tyler: So I put it into R for ready. Then I hit the button. Hey,
Ryan: And it just went
Tyler: Cody. How'd you get here? I walk. I'm not allowed to drive. Um,
Tyler: we should not have.
Ryan: I gave him the button.
Tyler: Um, he just, he was here early shit. Okay.
Ryan: It was the first one here. I think he slept
Tyler: nah, dammit. Yeah, no, the Hyperloop would be cool. I mean,
Ryan: I think it's really going to revolutionize, uh, travel for sure.
Greg: And I think it will help a lot of people who's who have a fear of flying, um, for sure. And I think it will make access and you might see a lot more urbanization in the Midwest because
Ryan: can go quick. You
Greg: can go quick. You know, a lot of these re you know, we're already, we talked about the migration of Silicon Valley people out into the Midwest.
Anyways. Um, this could make those commutes 45 minutes to an hour and a half. I mean, if you can go from LA to San Francisco, you know, AA, you could go from Las Vegas to San Francisco in an hour and a half. Um,
Tyler: Oh, Vegas to LA train. Oh boy.
Ryan: I'm saying
Greg: Vegas to San
Ryan: well, cause like flying out of Boston to LA, because I did that when I was in high school. Um, that's like a five-hour trip. If you have one of these tubes across the continent and you figure roughly if it's going to 40, it's pretty much cutting the time in half. So, and it can go up to 500, at least that's the goal.
I mean that's stupid fast. That would be two and a half hours minimum. That's ridiculous. So, and it's hopefully, hopefully it will be cheaper than flying because it's so much faster.
Greg: Great. And speaking of cheap, the Amazon Luna,
Tyler: Oh, the Luna,
Ryan: about the
Tyler: the Luna. So the Luna came out Amazon's game streaming service.
Ryan: great name
Tyler: Yeah. That's yep. That's where that ends. Um, so as opposed to most of like, so most streaming services, like, so. Project X cloud with X-Box is streaming service. Basically, if you have game, pastor, I believe right now is $15 you have access
Ryan: the ultimate. Yeah.
Tyler: Yeah, well, I think, I don't even think they're doing
Ryan: Oh, they're not okay.
Tyler: Um, or game pass. Ultimate. Yeah, whatever the best one, use that one.
Ryan: The top one,
Tyler: Um, cost about 15 a month. You have won hundreds, if not, at
Ryan: it's a hundred plus games.
Tyler: Um, G-Force now five bucks a month. Stadia 10 bucks a month. Um, most of those, so stadia and G4S require you to buy the games, but then you're there your games, um, Luna is doing a little bit differently than doing a subscription model per like, channel, so to
Ryan: pass almost, but like tweaked like categories, if you will
Tyler: Kind of. Yeah. So, so Luna has there's and Ubisoft announced it was going to be one of the first channels. So you can pay for the Ubisoft channel, go on their play. Assassin's
Ryan: That's actually pretty
Greg: Well, the Luna service itself is about six bucks a month.
So just for that six month bucks a month, you have access to, you know, a base set of apps like CBS, all access and HBO and shutter. Right. Is that that's, that's what you get for the,
Tyler: That sounds like something that would be correct.
Greg: Nope. Just kidding.
Tyler: You got me. You did me. I can bamboozle.
Greg: all for a monthly fee.
So I want to know what they've got that, cause it just sounds like you're paying six bucks a month to then pay to ha you know, have, have all your other subscriptions, just in one place. Plus like with the games, like you get access to the games, but then like you don't get to use them once your subscriptions working
Tyler: Right? So you don't actually,
Ryan: passwords too, though.
Tyler: well there, you don't have to pay you so you pay $15. You get access to
Ryan: You have all the games, the library's open too. You can just download them and go.
Tyler: right? Luna.
Ryan: You have to subscribe to the developer channel, I think would be a good way to look at it where it's broken down by developers, Ubisoft, for instance.
So is it all Ubisoft games that you have access to or just select one?
Tyler: Uh, there's a good chunk. I'm not sure if they've so, I mean you have,
Ryan: the big titles though. Like most of the Assassin's creeds will probably be there.
Tyler: yeah. So Assassin's creed, Odyssey, origins, creed scent, uh, uh, yeah, creed Hooper, syndicate Valhalla, far cry.
Ryan: Valhalla that just launched today.
Tyler: well, careful I'm more than halfway on this list.
Ryan: Oh, good.
Tyler: uh, steep ghost recon break point Wildlands, the division trials, fusion and watchdogs,
Ryan: like they're big titles that they've had in recent years.
Tyler: right? That's 14 games.
Ryan: I mean, that's a decent chunk of games. And if you're, if you're a Ubisoft fan, first of all, shame on you. Second of all, it's probably, I mean, what does it go for? Do we even know?
Is it 20? I'm seeing a number here $21 a month,
Tyler: So Ubisoft itself, that channel itself is $15 a month.
Ryan: plus the $6 Luna subscription. I mean, It's an interesting pricing structure, but game pass where it's 15 bucks a month and all of the games that you just listed are on there, unless you're, unless they're pulling them off. But, and on top of that with game pass, if you can tell I'm a pretty big fan of game pass, um, but with game pass, you get a discount on the game.
If you do end up wanting to buy it.
Tyler: Yeah. And most, most games you got to just kind of get discount on different things on game pass. Um, hell at that point, stadia is even a better bar.
Ryan: it's, it's a unique pricing structure. I don't think it makes a whole lot of sense. Um, it might make more sense. Well, no, see, you're really not at that price point. It really doesn't make sense. The price point with all of the other different options out there.
Tyler: Right. Like I, so
Ryan: Like I was really trying to come up with something to make that really worth it, but it's really not.
Tyler: I don't, I don't understand it. So there are, so there are a handful of, Oh boy. Um, so not all the games for Luna have been announced yet, but the ones that so control is on there.
Ryan: Did you ever play control?
Tyler: So a list of games that are confirmed available beyond the Ubisoft games, abs zoo, a plague tale brothers, a tale of two sons control iconoclasts grid, Panzer Dragoon, remake, resident evil seven biohazard, the surge two and ukulele.
Greg: Oh, and tennis to world tour.
Ryan: So I know like four of those other games besides the Ubisoft games.
Tyler: I mean, so ukulele, like they're cool. I mean, it's exactly what I expect to pay six bucks once for,
Ryan: Yeah. I mean, now those other games that aren't specific Ubisoft titles, do you get those with the $6 subscription? Okay. See, that's not awful. There's some decent titles on there. I'm sure they're going to add more to it. And for six bucks, I don't think that's that terrible.
Tyler: It, I think everyone's kind of rushing to the gate to compete with Microsoft and stadia.
Ryan: And they're trying to shake it up and I get what they're trying to do because you can't just be another subscription service because you're not going to have the titles. You're not going to have the pricing, the price point that they have. You, you have to pick a new Avenue and I get where they're going with Luna, where they're trying to pick a new pricing structure, a new price model.
Um, and it sounds like the pieces are there for it to be really good, where you can custom build this Luna subscription service to where you're only being know. You're only gonna have games that you really want to play, and it's going to be very much fine tuned to what you want. But the price point for what you're actually getting is it's just not there and
Ryan: user either.
Greg: speaking of, of getting things at a good price point, Yeah, good value. Very excited about this, that razor has, has released the new Kara pro and Cara headset for Xbox it's beautiful.
Ryan: It does look
Greg: sleek. It's USBC. They finally made the move to USB-C
Ryan: not only USBC it's Bluetooth 5.0, which is pretty awesome too
Greg: it's inexpensive a hundred, 150 bucks in terms of a headset that's
Ryan: yeah. It's about what you would expect for a good gaming
Greg: yup. What's also nice is that the ear cups swivel. So for like packing away and that kind of thing makes for easy folding.
Ryan: that's pretty solid.
Greg: It also has two separate volumes, one for game. Okay. And then one for the headset itself,
Ryan: if you're using like music or something,
Greg: Yep. So you can, you can do them individually. Um, which is really cool. Um, And then, but I mean, the swiveling cups, like if I want to, if I'm just like going for like eight hours and I just like, want to pass out, I can just like swivel the ear cups and just lay it down on my chest and
Ryan: and just really just collapsed from your day of gaming. You know what else it has. RGB
Tyler: I hate RGB and headphones
Ryan: Well, they have it
Cause like why
Ryan: Well, so for this one, they don't have a picture.
Greg: that it will cost $50 more.
Ryan: Well, that's the main reason and it goes faster. But, um,
Tyler: The headphones. Good. Do go
Ryan: right. So I guess the RGB is literally just built into the, uh, the three snake logo that's on the ear cups.
So. It's not super intrusive. It's, it's more subtle and more of like a gentle nod to RGB. So I don't have a picture of it, unfortunately. So I can't really see how good it actually looks. I'm just going based off of the article and that's where they're saying it is. So hopefully it's not super loud in your face.
Hopefully, you know ha ha because it's headphones, but I am hoping that the RGB is just really subtle. Cause I agree with you, RGB on headphones tends to be just flashing of noxious.
Tyler: So I'm curious, I mean, for 150 bucks for USB-C wireless, a wireless headset.
Ryan: So not only does it have all of that stuff, it has an app that you can get on your phone to mess with the equalizer settings in the headset itself to really customize the sound quality that you want.
Like they really ramped it up. You can do quite a bit of things.
Greg: Yeah. I still wouldn't put them up to like court's air quality. Cause Corsair's headsets are incredible, incredible sound. And they're tying with the, with the Dolby, uh, app in terms of controlling, our surround is amazing, but, um,
Ryan: don't those costs like an arm and a leg though,
Greg: No. They're about the same. Yeah, 150. Um, but I think again with razor, there's a lot of value here.
There's a lot of value for the price.
Ryan: Yeah. You're definitely getting a solid set of headphones, uh, for 150 bucks. You're not, I don't think you're going to be disappointed with these. They seem, they seem to be really good quality and. It's got all the right stuff and it even has RGB. So, you know, it's good.
Greg: Yeah, absolutely. I only buy things with RGP.
Tyler: Yeah. I just wish you could remove the microphone.
Ryan: I'm pretty sure you can actually, there's a picture. I'm looking at it that doesn't look like it has it in,
Tyler: If you're gonna remove the microphone. That's great deal.
Ryan: I'm almost positive. You can. Cause I think you're supposed to be able to use them as headphones for like music and stuff.
Greg: Yeah. God, can I have the picture? Where's Rick, I need a water. What the fuck did you just say to me?
Ryan: Oh, he's gonna, he's gonna get ya.
Greg: Uh, where are we at? Time-wise.
Tyler: just under a half hour.
Greg: Total recording
Tyler: I mean, when you, when you started with the Rick, well, no, sorry, totally recording. Just over half hour, we lost about three minutes.
Greg: Well, that's unfortunate goal.
Ryan: Yeah, you're right
Greg: All right. So that brings us to our next headline. Which has to do with Marvel and the Marvel realm of champions, which has a launch date, uh, for those of you that don't know,
Ryan: I don't know. Please tell me what this is.
Greg: Marvel on the champions is, uh, coming from the makers of contest. Do you ever play contest of champions? Okay. So it is an action RPG. It's a real-time RPG, which allows you to make your own Marvel characters and have them join alliances.
Ryan: That's pretty cool
Greg: It's coming out mid December, December 16th. Um, and it has, uh, uh, they released the first look at the arena game play mode, which is players battling in a two V2 arena style. Um, it's the stories based on the secret Wars comic.
Storyline. Um, and so you have a lot of there and I'm assuming the story's going to be fairly loose, you know, with
Greg: just go in and beat the shit out of each other.
Ryan: and if you're making your own characters with your own powers and stuff. So
Greg: Um, but you can align your character with several houses, you know, the house of iron for iron man, the house of probably spiders for Spiderman.
Ryan: that makes sense. Yeah.
Greg: Um, and you can also preregister now because you can play on Android and iOS.
Tyler: it's a mobile game. So quality our expectations.
Greg: Still great. I'll take it.
Ryan: I mean, it sounds really cool. Um, it, it definitely sounds like, I don't know, like, it sounds super cool. It sounds very unique. And is there anything else besides the arena mode or is that just all we know about right now?
Greg: That's all I can see.
Greg: Um, but I'm assuming there is the arena and the, and the,
Ryan: The normal gameplay stuff. Yeah. Cause the arena mode sounds cool. I'd be very curious as to what it is like for as far as the objective, if it's just like beat each other up or whatever, if there's an actual objective game mode to it,
Greg: Yeah. Well, I mean, we've got to give some mobile gaming love on this show.
We don't give mobile gaming any love
Ryan: love to see it be so much more than it is. We're just not quite there yet, but this could be a step in the right direction.
Tyler: Yeah. Now hopefully hopefully gets, I mean, contest of champions is cool, but it just, it's just still had that like
Greg: mobile gaming.
Tyler: Yeah. That mobile game freemium funk to it. Like not a fan.
Greg: Yep. So that was our headlines for the week.
Now we're going to move on to our, your news. All right. And I get to go first again, cause I was there cause I found fucking elves on rockets.
Greg: The U the next us military space, a spy satellite was sent up, uh, and the national reconnaissance office generally buy it. Its name and reputation does not usually say a lot about its launch.
Ryan: which kind of makes sense
Greg: Yeah. Um, it was an Atlas five rocket and, uh, the rockets going into space to put up another by satellite. Um, and what happened was, is that
Greg: We're starting. So the NRO generally has a history of picking odd phrases and themes for its mission posters. Like when it's doing stuff.
Um, it's usually like some phrase in Latin with like a mythological character, like Pegasus or, or, you know, Thor or something like
Ryan: like a code name
Greg: But yeah, but this one, the is a Lord of the rings themed thing and you can kind of see it there in the picture. Yeah. Where it is an Elvish phrase that says, goodness persists.
And it's written in English and Elvish terroir script, which was Tolkien and no one associated with the NRO said anything about it. Like when they were asked in the press conference, they just moved on.
Ryan: I mean,
Greg: would not explain the
Ryan: just what it is, you know,
Greg: So, uh, why is the Lord of the rings influence on there?
Uh, we will be launching hopefully in the next two weeks. Yeah. But the, the Lord of the rings thing, I mean, you wrote the Elvis script that you wrote on there, like who put Elvis script on this
Ryan: who okayed this?
Greg: So, uh, yeah, we've been looking forward to this for a while.
Tyler: so how long has bill Bellacheck worked at the NRO?
Ryan: It's been a hot second.
Greg: we're out of the moon? Yeah. We had a lot of great success today from all three phases of the team, uh, operations, uh, rocketry and, uh, the Elvis translators. Uh, I did I say Elvish, I'm an English. Yeah. So that's, that's it. We're sending weird satellites into space using Elvis script that no one seems to want to talk about.
Ryan: that's delightful
Tyler: Well, cause the elves are on the ship. That's what's happening.
Greg: them all and we're just shooting them to space.
Tyler: We didn't know what to do. So.
Greg: Little did we
Ryan: gotta get rid of him
Greg: It's just a humping rocket to take out the six G satellite from,
Ryan: Oh my God. That's brilliant.
Greg: were launched right around the same time. Oh,
Ryan: Oh that's Oh, and they're both gone. Huh?
Tyler: It's like, Oh, you were the you the launch operator. Yeah. Like what'd you notice anything weird? Yeah, we launched this one at like a 60 degree angle. I'm not really sure why.
Ryan: Yeah. This one really kind of key, you know, they usually go straight out. This one went, Ooh. It was real low to the ground.
Greg: went straight towards China.
Tyler: Yeah. They told us to put sunglasses on about three minutes after it launched. Don't look directly at it. We didn't know what it was then we did. Yeah,
Greg: Speaking of not knowing what it is. Uh, tell us about something that you could put in your mouth that you may not know what it is.
Tyler: right. McDonald's uh, so burger King has they're impossible. Whopper. Taco bell has their tacos, you know, I'm still confused on what's actually in this, um, now McDonald's is going to be making their own plant-based burger. The McCoy plant
Greg: Which is awful because they literally just ruined the only idea if they got into the weed business. Yeah.
Ryan: that would have been brilliant.
Greg: I'll make plant right next door to a McDonald's just go smoke up and then just go pound some
Ryan: Yeah. Just fricking house, a whole big
Tyler: But so now I don't, I don't think they partner with beyond. I think they, they think they, well, I think they partner with beyond before for
Ryan: For their original, like vegetarian, whatever the fuck it was.
Tyler: But I think, I think this is just them going in-house to do it. Um,
Greg: Oh, making
Tyler: yes. So they, they, they partnered with beyond to kind of test initially.
Greg: then cut them loose.
Tyler: And then cut them loose. And now,
Greg: Thanks. We've got the secret.
Tyler: I think beyond had beyond dropped when that got announced.
Greg: Yeah, the stock has been under, uh, under pressure
Ryan: you know how it is,
Greg: So we have the MC plant. Can you get some Mac sauce on it? Cause if I can put Mac sauce on it.
Ryan: sauce on anything and it's good.
Tyler: That's going to be cauliflower base at that point.
Ryan: You made that worse somehow.
Tyler: Wow. Yeah.
Greg: Well, interesting. That's
Tyler: the mic plan.
Greg: So, uh, I can't even introduce this,
Ryan: so. I'm just going to preface this with Japan. So this is a product that was made. Let me see if I can find the company name, premium Bondai. Band-aide however you pronounce it. So they made a product and it's it's it has a Japanese name, but it loosely translates to, I don't want to go out. So. It, if you're familiar with Pokemon at all, it looks like a Metapod, which is basically a cocoon. Um, and the idea behind it is you're working from home
Greg: the look on his face that just gets me
Ryan: while you're working from home. When you're all done working, you can just crawl inside your little Metapod and just hang out in it. Which is, I mean, there's a diagram to go with this thing.
Like it's real. And I just can't believe this. This is a picture of him staring at a mirror of himself. I appreciate
Greg: The Metapod middle section is high enough. Four, if you want to shake somebody's hand really quickly while you're inside the pod, it gives you enough height to get a solid Furman shake.
Ryan: you have plenty of room to do that.
Greg: Yeah. And then you'll, you'll come out, uh, as a Butterfree just covered in butter
Ryan: all buttered up.
Ryan: It's such a
Tyler: Just when you're in there, you can use string shot and it's
Ryan: Oh no.
Greg: Japan. Yeah.
Ryan: That's why you just preface this one with Jay.
Greg: I can't wait until I can get inside of Charles ARD.
Ryan: That would actually be pretty cool. Yeah. That'd be a pretty okay
Greg: Like I'm really upset that they kind of I'm kind of sad that they started with a medical, like at the Metro pods eyes.
It's like, Oh, it sends me again.
Ryan: yeah, it's just, the whole thing is
Greg: like, I want to sleep inside a slowpoke or like a Snorlax.
Ryan: might die. If you sleep in a slow poke,
Greg: But like, that's just a weird pug. I get, I get the cocoon idea and like Cass Kuhn is isn't really shaped well enough to be like, well, Casco, would it be more of the fetal position when your day's really bad? You just can hear cast
Ryan: You just crawl in the CAS queue and that's how people, Oh, he's had a fucking day. All right. Let's leave him alone.
Greg: Yeah, it does look very comfy though.
Ryan: It does. I mean,
Greg: I would love if it had like speakers inside, like Bluetooth speakers. So you can just sit there and
Ryan: You could probably do that. It does look like there's like little pouches here on the side, on the inside of it.
Tyler: So I want you to know with all this talk of like, Oh, I died, sleep in this, I'd sleep in that. And I'm like, you know what? That sounds like. Sounds like a thing from star Wars. And then I find there's a tauntaun sleeping bag.
Greg: Oh, of
Ryan: Oh, no, it's got legs
Greg: did you see the other positions that you can put the Metapod in?
Ryan: There's a couple of
Greg: Holy smokes?
Ryan: I mean, you could like, it does look pretty
Greg: This photo shoot must have been so uncomfortable.
Tyler: No, it was super comfortable.
Ryan: Yeah. No, that guy was just
Greg: one with him on his side. There's one where he's literally on his back with his feet against the wall.
Ryan: one where he is.
Tyler: I just like, it has all insinuates. It's like you just put it right next to your computer. Apparently dive in head first.
Ryan: as soon as work's over, you just write in the Metapod. That sounds like a, like a,
Ryan: that is a lot of fucking money for
Greg: sure is.
Ryan: yen. If you're in Japan,
Tyler: you're not buying this in the U
Greg: Is that tie D data or I don't want to go out. All right. Cool. I don't ever want to say that again cause that's horrifying.
Ryan: I do love it though.
Greg: all right. Well that was our D R.
Tyler: That was our D suck it folks.
Greg: That was our, uh, weird news of the week. And so now we're moving on to
everybody and I'm going to take a break from Sox this week because the election's over and, uh, we're heading into a new year. And, um, I like most millennials can not buy a house, but I really liked talking about it, uh, because I would love to have a house. And the housing market has been really, really high the past couple of years.
And it is certainly peaked. Like there are homes that are going for a lot of money. So if you sold one recently, good for you. Um, my, I, my hope and my thought. Is that next year, we're going to start to see it go down and that within the next couple of years, we're going to see that even out, hopefully not bottom out, but even out to a point where it can be affordable.
But I know a lot of my friends are saving up for one and very excited. Um, and I caution them all to not buy now, please don't buy now, please, please. For the love of God, don't buy now because in one to two years, you'll be upside down. Um, so that's my advice. I, I, you know, I'm saving for one, but right now I can afford.
Anyways, so where that's my bias. So that's, that's my sort of a sway away from, from stock news of the week. Um, and also, Oh, well also avoid, uh, you know, watch, I don't own stock in beyond burger, but watch it because it has dropped. So it, it, it could definitely plummet. And also, again, as I said last week, keep an eye out for the Airbnb IPO.
I'm excited about that. One might start pretty high. Very cool. Very nice.
Tyler: Excellent break on stocks, Greg,
Ryan: Nice job, Greg. Nice
Tyler: a break on stocks.
Greg: This is an investment. Stocks are an investment. It's the investment. Yeah, I know whatever.
Ryan: I'm not going to talk about stocks,
Greg: like a hacky sack. You never know where I'm going to go. And he kicked me.
Ryan: It's true.
Tyler: Hopefully not fucking back to me. Jesus.
Ryan: So that was our
Greg: minute, uh, this week.
And that's the end of our nano news for this week. So thank you so much for joining us for our fifth episode. Uh, we've really enjoyed being here with you, Jill. Thanks for listening.
Ryan: It's our sixth episode, by the way.
Tyler: Sure. Is.
Ryan: We have more episodes than people who only have five.
Greg: that's awesome. Okay, cool. Well, uh, well that's, that's just very alarming. Um,
Tyler: yeah, no more of us is always pretty alarming
Greg: in one type of subway bread. Say goodbye
Ryan: Whole wheat. What? That's not
Tyler: in Ireland in Ireland. It is.
Greg: Italian herbs and cheese.
Ryan: You know, you look, you put me on the spot. Okay.
